Philippine Embassy in Singapore observes 2016 International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking

27 June 2016. Following the directive of the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Dangerous Drugs Board in observance of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDADAIT) on 26 June 2016, the Philippine Embassy in Singapore is displaying a banner at the Embassy’s Cultural Corner featuring the theme, “LISTEN FIRST: Listening to children and youth is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe”. The initiative is aimed at supporting the campaign of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) to generate more awareness on the dangers and ill-effects of dangerous drugs, develop peer support networks among service providers and recovering drug dependents (RDD) beneficiaries as well as to promote unity within the advocacy of treatment and preventive education. The anti-drug campaign will form part of the agenda of the next Filipino community leaders’ meeting at the Philippine Embassy in Singapore in July 2016.
